Whether you’re the kind of person who is constantly checking your horoscope, or the kind that barely even knows what your astrological sign is, you can both admit that you’ve checked out a post or two telling you about yourself based on your sign to see if it’s actually accurate. Our Design Assistant, Erica, just so happens to know a whole lot about astrological signs and how they can align with your personal traits. Below you can find out what your design style is, as told by your sun sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Ruling Planet: Mars
Power Colors: Red, Bright Orange
Design Style: Modern
The baby of the zodiac, Aries are known for their energetic, fiery personalities and nonstop lifestyles. As such, they require a space as intense and stimulating as they are. With hard lines, masculine influences, and bold hues, true Modern design is the clear embodiment of the Aries spirit.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Ruling Planet: Venus
Power Colors: Pink
Design Style: Midcentury Modern
All things art, culture, and beauty are the Taurean way. Above all else, this earth sign values harmony, stability, and conservation. These qualities, in combination with a feminine color palette and natural woody elements make Midcentury Modern the easy choice in capturing the Taurus aura.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Ruling Planet: Mercury
Power Colors: Yellow
Design Style: Transitional
Geminis’ trademark duality of spirit is their driving force. They tend to be very cheerful, talkative, and uplifting, but can be quick to change. This mercurial sign is unlikely to commit to one extreme or the other, making Transitional design the ideal style to embody their energetic disposition and meld together their wide range of interests.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Ruling Planet: Moon
Power Colors: Silver, Grey, Cream
Design Style: Traditional
The mother of the zodiac, Cancers are known for their soft, empathetic, and nurturing disposition. They tend to feel most in their element when at home with friends and family, placing value on stability and intimacy. This makes Traditional design, with its historic roots, feminine details, and subdued color palette the perfect style to capture the Cancerian nature.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Ruling Planet: Sun
Power Colors: Gold, Royal Purple, Burnt Orange
Design Style: Maximalism
Leos are born leaders and known for their warmth, creativity, and bravery. Though they can at times be dramatic, Leos’ cheeky sense of humor and bold, vivacious nature is their ultimate charm. Naturally, their personality is best reflected in a Maximalist design style, because when Leos commit themselves to something, they do so wholeheartedly.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Ruling Planet: Mercury
Power Colors: Olive Green, Ochre, Tan
Design Style: Minimalist
Virgos are a very grounded, logical sign and as a result are highly selective with their time and energy. They are cautious to only focus on what truly matters, which can at times lead them down the road to perfectionism if left unchecked. Virgos’ no-nonsense, value-driven way of life is best expressed through a clean Minimalist design style.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Ruling Planet: Venus
Power Colors: Lavender, Pink, Pistachio, Aqua, Peach
Design Style: Hollywood Regency
Being the most charming of the signs, Libras are born entertainers and generally gifted raconteurs. As such, they place great emphasis on culture, the arts, and connection. They crave balance in all avenues of life, but often get distracted by shiny things along the way. The obvious design style to best emulate Libran energy is of course bright, playful Hollywood Regency.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Ruling Planet: Mars, Pluto
Power Colors: Black, Crimson, Burgundy, Maroon
Design Style: Art Deco
Scorpios are known for being the most complex, intense, and mysterious of the signs. Their strength and dominance are apparent, but underneath it all they are just truly passionate and sensitive individuals. These traits, plus their affinity for cleanliness makes the dramatic, intense, and clean lines of Art Deco design their ideal style.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Power Colors: Purple, Plum, Dark Blue
Design Style: Scandinavian
Sagittarians are the seekers and explorers of the zodiac. They are perpetually looking for answers, searching for new philosophies, and refusing to slow down. Naturally, their style is best captured by thoughtful, sleek Scandinavian design, which compromises on neither form nor function.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Ruling Planet: Saturn
Power Colors: Dark Brown, Charcoal Grey, Black
Design Style: Modern Farmhouse
Capricorns are the backbone of the zodiac, and they place high value on structure and discipline. They are headstrong, dependable, practical, and mature individuals. These qualities, in combination with their feminine and earthy auras, make Modern Farmhouse design the ideal style for Capricorns.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Ruling Planet: Uranus
Power Colors: Aqua, Turquoise
Design Style: Eclectic Bohemian
Aquarians are arguably the most unique and independent of the signs, being known for their electrifying, energizing, and almost otherworldly personalities. They are thinkers, innovators, and humanitarians at their very core, and their quirkiness makes for a perfect match with an Eclectic Bohemian design style.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Ruling Planet: Neptune
Power Colors: Indigo, Blue, Seafoam Green
Design Style: Coastal
Pisces are the most sensitive sign and are almost sponge-like in how they absorb the energy around them. Anything toxic, harmful, or otherwise stress-inducing can have a significant impact on this otherwise easygoing and amicable sign, so it is important for their space to feel like a true oasis and safe haven. These needs, in combination with the water in their chart, make soft, chic Coastal design the perfect style for Pisces.
